Dow-Key Publishes New Application Note for the Reliant Switch Product Series

Dow-Key Microwave publishes new Engineering Application Note in conjunction with the recent release of the Reliant Switch™ product series; a solution for Automated Test Equipment (ATE) applications.

Reliant Switch™ Application Note introduces an analysis of the various applications, technology, and configurations of the high performance Reliant Switch™ product series. It is intended for microwave instrumentation and modern automated test systems for high accuracy and performance. For the engineering note described, test data plots were taken to guarantee insertion loss repeatability of 0.03 dB across a frequency band of DC to 26.5 GHz.

Supporting the upcoming 5G standard, including applications on the lower end of the spectrum, the Reliant Switch™ Application Note also defines the technology and application of its newest generation of switch matrix product line, the Miniature MS-Series (MMS). It is an ideal solution for routing RF signals in test and measurement applications using high performance Reliant Switches™.

The Reliant Switch™ application note comprises of 40 years of combined Dow-Key Microwave team experience in the design and development of electromechanical RF switches with very demanding specifications and supporting challenging environments. Dow-Key Microwave offers extensive technical and application support providing value-added quality to an already robust product offering.
